Spurs started the match with most of their first team players on the bench or out injured. Spurs Assistant Coach Rohan Browne, said once all the players are fit, Spurs will be an unstoppable force. He added that there is a good feeling in the team and they are working hard to avoid complacency. “Right now we are just trying to avoid complacency. There is a good feeling in the team right now; we’re doing well…we will just continue to do what we are doing in training,” he said.
As for coach Jevon Francis of Trafalgar Southstars, they will have to go back to the drawing board. “I encourage them to come to and play positive football; come out to win, come out to walk on the pitch with something on the scoresheet but once again it wasn’t so,” Francis lamented.
In Friday’s other match, St. Peters F.C. edged S-Krave Newtown United 1-0.

After the match we spoke to St. Peters coach Anthony Nets Isaac. “I was very disappointed with the first half of the game and coming into the second half. We went in and we came out with a different plan. We executed for the first 15, 20 minutes and then laid back and then the pressure started coming on us,” Isaac explained.
